What do you make when you can’t eat junky white processed flour but are a pizza lover?! CAULIFLOWER CRUST PIZZA!!
There are SO many more benefits to this alternative-you’ll feel good, which means you’ll look good! Well, I do, ever since giving my food a makeover. I TRY to stay clear of eating white processed flour-and really any sorts of processed foods. So I turn to this Crust Recipe when I’m craving a takeaway. It’s all veggies so it is a guilt-free pizza pie-YUM!
(Makes 1 large round pizza or 4 small pizzettes)
1 small head of cauliflower
1 clove of garlic
pinch of Himalayan or sea salt
Tablespoon of dry, mixed herbs (Oregano, Basil, Parsley)
1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax+3 tablespoons water-rest for 15 min)
Sweet Potato Sauce
1 large BOILED or ROASTED sweet potato
tablespoon of nutritional yeast
pinch of salt
Pizza toppings that pair great with this Sauce: sauteeed mushrooms, sauteed onions, spinach, and walnuts
Preheat oven to 450F.
To make the crust: Wash and dry cauliflower. Cut off the floret. In a food processor, pulse all ingredients EXCEPT the flax egg until it looks like the consistency of rice.
Put the cauliflower in a mixing bowl and add the flax egg.
Spoon the mixture onto a baking tray. Pat and shape with your fingers into a circle.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown (this may take up to 20 for the larger pizza/depending on your oven).
While the base is baking in the oven you’ll want to make your sauce and toppings.
To make the Sauce: Siimply mash the sweet potato with a fork until smooth. Mix in the nutritional yeast and smooth.
Back to the Crust: Take the Crust out and spread the Sauce. Add the Toppings. Bake for another 10 minutes.
